People come to the world famous Mobile Phone Cliff to throw their mobile phones into the sea in Hong Kong. All kinds of mobile phones are thrown away, even the most expensive ones. We saw the following wet apparatus floating in the sea. Hong Kong children often come to the beach down the cliff during low tide to collect mobile phones. They dry the batteries and sell them to a local electronics shop, Mongkok Fortress, to earn pocket money.
